Description:

OCTOBER 3rd - This Friday
ORPHAN WORKS PRESENTATION AT STEVENSON UNIVERSITY
Stevenson University, 7:30 a.m. reception, 8 a.m. speaker

Andres Quintana of the Quintana Law Group will discuss on the pending and controversial "Orphan Works" Copyright Legislation with AIGA Baltimore. The proposed legislation would substantially limit remedies for copyright infringement in cases where the copyright owners cannot be found and may have a disproportionate impact on design professionals.

Find out questions like what is an "orphaned work" and when is a copyrighted work considered "orphaned", what steps must a user of an orphaned work take before and after using the work, how will the pending copyright legislation on orphan works affect the rights of design professionals and what can design professionals do now to protect their work from becoming "orphaned"?

Mr. Quintana is principal attorney at the Quintana Law Group, APC. They represent diverse clients, including design professionals, in local and multi-jurisdictional litigation and other high-stakes intellectual property disputes. For more information about Andres Quintana or his law firm, please visit www.qlglaw.com.

The event is co-sponsored by Stevenson University and will be located at the Pavillion. The event is free to AIGA members and Stevenson University students. Non-members $15. RSVP to heather@baltimore.aiga.org
